Centrally located in the heart of Catania, San Max Hotel offers very comfortable rooms at an affordable price. Breakfast, in a bar next door to the hotel is delicious. Hosts are very helpful and kind.

Very good hotel. Location is excellent and having a private car park on site is important. Room I had was good and up to date. Staff are friendly. Only minor gripe is that quality of breakfast was a bit limited. But still adequate.

Our tour operator chose this hotel for us. We were perfectly happy here, large corner room on the second floor over looking the Garden, well maintained room, everything was working, room clean and a very comfortable mattress. Location is perfect, and considering how close to the road was surprisingly quiet. Enjoyed our stay

Located in the center of Catania and has an excellent private parking ( € 10 / day). Been here three nights for trips to Mount Etna and Taormina. Since it is quite hectic at Catina it is a great hotel if you have a rental car so you can park safely. Hotel is situated in the main street and you...

We spent 1 night in this hotel before returning home after our 2.5 weeks adventure in Sicily. The hotel is located in the center of Catania and its within walking distance from all the major attractions. Arriving there by car is pretty simple and the hotel has a private parking place onsite. The parking place is on Via Cantarella and...

My Mother and I stayed at this hotel for three nights in June 2016. We got the Alibus from the airport. The bus stop was right infront of the hotel. The hotel is located on a busy and very long road. However, even though the road was busy, we heard no noise from our room and had a great night's...

The location of this place is hard to beat. The AliBus (from the airport) stops just a 100m away. It is a 5 minute walk down to the city centre and in the vicinity are bars, pubs and restaurants to choose from for a month. The rooms are spacious and the garden view rooms have a nice balcony to enjoy....

My boyfriend and I initially chose the hotel for its great location (right in the city centre). The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very clean and nice (with air conditioning!). I actually felt a little sad leaving the place. If I ever were to return to Catania I would definitely stay at San Max hotel...

Unfortunately I can easily say this was the worst hotel on our trip. Requested non-smoking room but there was a strong cigarette smell which didnt go away even after leaving the window open for hours. Hotel staff was friendly at the start but completely ignored us when we asked for another room and didn't even bother coming back to tell...

Max329, Direttore at San Max Hotel, responded to this review

we remember very well the problem. The customer was very angry for the cost of the parking and tried to have an upgrade of the room with the false reason of the smell. Really when we went in the room to verify the problem there was not any smell and they said that in 30 minutes it was expired. We...

Lovely, small and warm hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great destination for the town centre and shops. The owner of the hotel was very informative and welcomed us back. Would definitely go back there.
